The most widely used septic system is the gravity flow system. It consists of two main components: the septic tank and the drainfield.

Wastewater enters the septic tank from the home via gravity flow. Wastewater leaves the septic tank and enters the drainfield via gravity flow as well. The proper level in the septic tank relies entirely upon the drainfield’s ability to absorb wastewater into the soil. If the drainfield cannot absorb anymore wastewater, the wastewater may backup into the septic tank. Wastewater backup results in a high level in the septic tank, which causes drains in the home to fail or malfunction, (i.e. toilets won’t flush, sinks won’t drain, gurgling sounds, etc.).

For a long time, the only solution was to have your septic system pumped. Not anymore.

Simply install the filtered pump vault into the septic tank to immediately control the level in your septic tank.

Never pump the septic tank again to flush the toilet.
